How fast can you print TPU with direct drive?

How fast can you print TPU with direct drive?

35 mm/s.
It can often take several attempts to find the optimal print speed for 3D printing TPU material. However, a good starting point is a speed of 35 mm/s. To achieve this using TPU material, print at lower layer heights, ensuring they are in the range of 0.1mm to 0.2mm.

Does Direct Drive help with stringing?

Direct Drive mod – After modding the printer I did a few prints with PLA, and it works great with very little stringing.

Why is my TPU stringy?

In most cases, the cause of stringing is the leakage of liquid plastic. This means that liquid TPU is coming out of the nozzle as your extruder moves from a section that has already been printed to a section that still needs to be. The majority of slicing software is equipped with a setting that counteracts stringing.

Can you use Ender 3 Pro with direct drive?

I recently upgraded my Ender 3 Pro with a direct drive kit, primarily so I can print soft materials like TPU. I bought a spool of Overture TPU to try it out.

Are there any issues with the Ender 3 printer?

Purchasing a 3D printer is not just a simple plug and play exercise. There are many issues that may crop up ranging from under or over extrusion to stringing related issues. Let’s look at one of the most common issues facing the Ender 3: stringing in your prints. Stringing is also known as oozing, hairy prints, or whiskers.

Why are the strings on my Ender 3 machine oozing?

Ender 3 Stringing or Oozing Problems. Stringing is also known as oozing, hairy prints, or whiskers. This problem typically occurs when very small strings of filament plastic have been left behind in a 3D printed model. This is a more common issue with old machines rather than new ones.

Why does the Ender 3 slicer not retract?

Once enabled, it will stop retracting when the extruder is moving within the supports. Yes, there will be a bit of stringing, but only within the support structure. Retracting is a fine balance. Too much of it increases the print time and it can even damage your filament.
